Greg and Ashley
from New York
We have known one another since we were 18 years old and have been in love for the past 10 years. Our relationship began with honest and simple friendship. We are great together because we embrace simple foundational values which elevate us individually and as a family, chief among them – respect and admiration. That is where we will begin and grow a relationship with you; centered on respect and admiration.
Our family is big, loving, loud, and great. They are quite literally with us every step of the way. On good days and bad days. It’s the best thing in the world. More than anything, we want to grow our family and we would love nothing more than for you and your child to be a part of it.
Before we ever knew that biological children were likely not in our cards, we were attracted to
adoption as a potential way to grow our family. Now, it feels like our life has brought us to this point with purpose. We are proud and excited about where our path has taken us and we thank you for getting to know us better.

Ashley opened a boutique fitness studio with her older sister five years ago. The studio hosts both indoor cycling and heated yoga classes. She is dedicated and passionate about leading her team of 25 employees and cultivating a community where no matter your level of experience, you will be welcomed and accepted. Ashley’s job requires non-traditional hours that will enable her to stay at home part-time to care for and spend time with our baby.

O UR FAMILIES ARE AN INSEPARABLE PART OUR DAILY LIVES. Ashley’s parents, both sisters and two of our nieces all live less than a mile from our home. Ashley’s work life is also woven in with family; she owns her business with her older sister and their younger sister is a manager at their fitness studio. Ashley’s family also has a ski house about 2 hours away where nearly every winter weekend is spent with her parents, sisters, cousins and all of their children. Greg’s sister’s family including her three children live one town over. We see Greg’s dad on a near-weekly basis when he visits us and his grandkids or during weekends spent at his house which sits on 60 acres of fields, forests and two ponds. We are all different but share common bonds and experiences that tie us together.
Our friends from high school, college and every other walk of life serve as extended family which enhance, enrich, and diversify our tight knit support structure. They all combine to create a rich and complete life that we can’t wait to share with our child.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW US. We hope and pray to expand our family and welcome more love into our lives. We look forward to raising your child in a loving home, filled with laughter, respect and integrity. We understand this decision is not one taken lightly; we have the utmost respect and love for you and your child. We remain grateful for this opportunity you provided to allow us to realize our dream of becoming parents. Along with your child, we look forward to welcoming you as part of our family in an open and inclusive adoption structure.
